More Middle East violence over Israeli prison death

The funeral has been held of Arafat Jaradat, the Palestinian who died in an Israeli prison over the weekend. He'd been arrested for throwing stones at soldiers; the authorities say he died of a heart attack but Palestinians believe he was beaten. The fallout has led to violence between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers in Hebron, mindful of the fact that there are still 4700 being held prisoner in the Jewish State.
